The hotel is very conveniently located in Apollo Bay for the shops and amenities. You can park right outside the ground floor rooms so you can easily unload your baggage. The only negative comments are that the soundproofing is poor and you can hear your neighbours. There was also the noise from several lorries delivering goods to nearby shops in the early morning. Otherwise, well-serviced, immaculate rooms.

Not our usual choice of accommodation, but a good one. Walked in to reserve at a good rate.

Clean room, nice comfortable bed and close to several good eateries.

Ideal stopover on the way from Millicent to Melbourne...Recommended.

Room Tip: Ground floor room , so much easier if like us you have heavy luggage.

The rooms are good but the surroundings are not exciting although it is relatively centrally located and there are several good restaurants withing easy walking distance. As always during our six weeks in Australia, we only met very friendly and helpful staff. The room was well equipped.

Agree with other reviewer that this is a very average old style motel. This is really grim if your surroundings are important to you. Clean. Tiny rooms but well equipped. Shower had to be seen to be believed, was it really a 1950s relic?

Do not believe the photo shown, goodness knows how they got it to look Iike that. The "swimming pool" is in the middle of the car park and looks very much like something associated with electricity production

DO NOT HAVE BREAKFAST HERE. Our breakfast was just like an airplane meal, everything was prepackaged even the cutlery and the bread to make toast!

Has guest laundry which is useful.

The hugely redeeming feature was the amazing guy on reception, who was efficient and helpful in practical ways as well as suggesting we visit Red Rock near Colac. Which is beautiful, 360 degree views over lakes and countryside and well worth a small detour but we didn't want to continue along the coast road to the 12 apostles anyway.

Room Tip: There are no good rooms
